It's a bit unfair to classify Beshoff's as 'fast food'. Yes, the food is fast, but the quality is far above that of other fast-food joints. The restaurant blurb gushes that the décor "evokes an Edwardian oyster bar". That is slightly pretentious; I would simply describe it as "old-style". Having said that, the look makes for a welcome change from their bland competitors in the 'fast-food' industry. What truly sets Beshoff's above the rest is that it is a restaurant, not a conveyor belt of processed food. You are trusted with proper cutlery, and you can even order yourself a beer (albeit a limited choice). In addition to their regular menu, there is a 'daily special' for the fantastic price of around €8.
A highlight of any trip to Beshoff's is the fine view of O'Connell Street's GPO and Spire from the first floor. Tuck into your fish supper, sip a cold beer, and watch the world go by on Dublin city's main thoroughfare.
